NOM's new MD: A second opinion

by Jeremy Hooper

One more thing about the National Organization for Marriage abruptly shifting their Maryland-centric site. Interesting how on the new web home, NOM, a so obviously Catholic organization (with Mormon undercurrent), now fully admits to strong ties with the local Catholic church:

We actually applaud the disclosure. The more NOM admits the link to groups like the Maryland Catholic Conference, the more we can educate Americans about the separation between civil marriage licensing (the freedom/access gay Americans are seeking) and the religious ceremony (which is to remain a decision of churches, as it already is for heterosexual couples). The more we can show how hostile our opposition is to this crucial notion, the better.
